Hardware Installation
This chapter contains the information you need to install and set up the Wireless 2880AP.
the following topics:
Decide where to place the AP
Connecting the Access Point
Checking the LED indicators
Attaching an External Antenna
It covers
Decide where to place the AP
Place the AP in a dry, clean location near the hub, switch, computer or printer that will be connected
to the AP. The location must have a power source and be within the following distance of a Wi-Fi
compliant wireless LAN access point or wireless access point.
The key to maximizing the wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances
that generate RF noise. The location should be away from transformers, heavy-duty motors,
fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, refrigerators.
Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the AP and other network devices to a minimum - each
wall or ceiling can reduce your AP’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so
that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.
Be a ware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (0.5 meters),
at a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks
over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a
wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.
Building materials can impede the wireless signal - a solid metal door or aluminum studs may have
a negative effect on range. Try to position wireless devices and computers with wireless adapters
so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways and not other materials.
Checking the LED Indicators
When the AP is connected to power, LEDs indicate activity as follows:
On: Power On
Off:Power Off
Blinking: sending/receiving data from wireless LAN
Off: Transmitter is off
On: Good Link
Blink ing: sending/receiving data from LAN Port
Off: No link
On:WPS Start’
Off:WPS Close
On:Security Start
Off:Security Close
Attaching an External Antenna
This AP comes with an antenna. It is external removable monopole signal-band 2.4 GHz antenna. It can be
rotated over 90 degrees and is omni-directional with a gain of less than 2 dBi. You can change a 5dBi
high gain antenna for creates a superior far-reaching wireless network
Charpter 3
If the default AP configuration does not meet your network requirements, or if you want to customize
the settings for your own network, you can directly connect to the device through it’s Ethernet port or
wireless to change the configuration. There are two typical applications:
1. Networks with a DHCP Server
If your network has a DHCP server, an IP address is automatic ally assigned to the AP. It takes between
one and two minutes for the Access Point to determine if there is a DHCP server on the network. After
you determine the AP’s IP address, you can enter that IP address into a web browser on a computer on
the same subnet to view the Access Point’s system status or change its configuration
2. Networks without a DHCP Server
If your network does not have a DHCP server, the Access Point uses a factory assigned IP address
( You can use that IP address to configure the Access Point, or you can assign a new IP
address to the Access Point.
To verify that the Access Point is using the default IP address assigned at the factory: Connect a
computer directly to the Access Point using the supplied standard Category 5 UTP Ethernet cable. Enter
the Access Point’s default IP address ( into the computer’s web browser. If the
Configuration Management System starts, the Access Point is using the factory assigned IP address. You
can configure the Access Point with the Web interface:
Username, type admin (case sensitive)
Password, type admin
Click ok.
In the following, you will learn how to configure the basic functionsof your wireless AP.
Language Configuration
The 2880AP support multi-language.After login on the web UI ,You can click open all to choose the
Language English or Traditional Chinese from the drop list.And you can choose Status and Statics to
view information about the AP.
Operation Mode
You may configure the operation mode suitable for you environment.If you select Bridge mode,all
ethernet and wireless interfaces are bridged into a single bridge interface.If you select Gateway mode,
The first ethernet port is treated as WAN port. The other ethernet ports and the wireless interface are
bridged together and are treated as LAN ports.And here, you can set whether NAT enabled.

Internet Settings
You may choose different connection type suitable for your environment. Besides, you may also configure
parameters according to the selected connection type.
Click Cancel to close without saving, click Apply to save the settings.
You may enable/disable networking functions and configure their parameters as your wish.
Click Cancel to close without saving, click Apply to save the settings.
DHCP Client
You could monitor DHCP clients here
Wireless Settings
Basic Wireless Settings
You could configure the minimum number of Wireless settings for communication, such as Network Name
(SSID) and Channel. The Access Point can be set simply with only the minimum setting items.
Network Mode
The 2880AP supports 11a, 11b, 11g, 11a/n mixed mode, 11b/11g mixed mode, 11b/g/n mixed mode.You can
configure the suitable network mode.
Service Set Identifier. This is the assigned name for a wireless Wi-Fi network. Stations must use this
unique identifier to communicate with an Access Point. The SSID can be any alphanumeric entry up to a
maximum of 32 characters.
The Wireless AP supports Multiple SSID which allows it to act as multiple AP appearing in a Wireless
LAN network. You can configure up to 7 SSID on the device.
Basic Service Set Identifier. This is the assigned MAC address of the station in the access point. This
unique identifier is in Hex format and can only be edited when Multi BSSID is enabled in the previous
SSID Broadcast
If you want to disable the broadcast of your SSID, you should check the Disable box. It also calls
Hide SSID.
Channel / Frequency
Select the channel for your wireless LAN in Channel/Frequency block. The default setting is Smart
Select it selects the channel which provides the best transmission quality. The frequencies available
vary depending which wireless mode you select.
WDS Link Settings
WDS (Wireless Distribution System) allows access points to communicate with one another wirelessly in a
standardized way. It can also simplify the network infrastructure by reducing the amount of cabling
required. Basically the access points will act as a client and an access point at the same time.
WDS is incompatible with WPA. Both features cannot be used at the same time. A WDS link is bidirectional, so the AP must know the MAC address of the other AP, and the other AP must have aWDS link
back to the AP.
Dynamically assigned and rotated encryption key are not supported in a WDS connection. This means that
WPA and other dynamic key assignment technologies may not be used. Only Static WEP keys may be used in
a WDS connection, including any STAs that are associated with a WDS repeating AP.
Enter the MAC address of the other APs you want to link to and click enable.
Supports up to 8 point to multipoint WDS links, check Enable WDS and then enable on the MAC addresses.
Example of a WDS topology:
AP1 <-- WDS --> Master AP (our AP) <-- WDS --> AP3<-- WDS --> AP4
HT Physical Mode

Advaced Wireless Settings
Use the Advanced Setup page to make detailed settings for the Wireless. Advanced Setup includes items
that are not available from the Basic Setup page, such as Beacon Interval, Control Tx Rates and Basic
Data Rates.
Basic Data Rate
Choose between the following data rates 1, 2, 5.5, 11, 6, 9 , 12, 18, 24, 36, 48,54 and auto. Default
is auto.
Beacon Interval
The interval time between 20ms and 500ms for each beacon transmission. The default is 100ms.
Data Beacon Rate (DTIM)
The Delivery Traffic Indication Message. Specify the data beacon rate between 1 and 255. Default is 1.
Fragment Length
The maximum packet size is used for fragmentation. Packets larger than the size programmed in this
field will be fragmented. The Fragment Threshold value must be larger than the RTS Threshold value.
The default is 2346.
RTS Threshold
Request to send threshold. The packet size that is used to determine if it should use the CSMA/CA
mechanism or the CSMA/CD mechanism
